Interested in joining us for a class? We got you, mama. Here is everything you need to know.
Stroller Strides / Stroller Barre
What do I need to bring to class?
Plenty of water, a towel or yoga mat/blanket, sunscreen (for outdoor classes), baby essentials including snacks and/or toys for your little one(s), comfortable walking/running shoes (both Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre are traveling classes), appropriate exercise attire, and any kind of stroller.
I just had a baby, when can I join Stroller Strides/Stroller Barre?
You can begin attending class with your doctor's clearance to begin exercising, typically after your six week postpartum appointment. See you there, mama!
Can I attend classes if I am pregnant?
Absolutely! We encourage expectant moms to continue to exercise throughout their pregnancies as long as everything has been approved by their physician. Instructors are qualified to lead our professionally designed pre/postnatal fitness programs that follow the latest American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) guidelines. We can modify any exercise that poses a challenge as you progress through your pregnancy. FIT4MOM® recommends you obtain your doctor’s approval prior to beginning Stroller Strides/Stroller Barre. If pregnant, please speak with your physician before your first day.
Exercise during pregnancy has proven beneficial and helps improve or increase the following:
Higher fatigue threshold
Posture and biomechanics
Self-esteem, sense of well-being
Can I try a class before I join?
Your first class with FIT4MOM DuPont, Lacey & JBLM class is always FREE! This allows you to see first hand if Stroller Strides/Stroller Barre/Body Back Transformation is a good fit for you and your little one! If you sign up here and create a profile, your first FREE class is automatically gifted to your account and you can come try us out!
How will I know if the class location has changed due to weather?
In the rare case of inclement weather, we may update class locations. Follow us on Facebook and check for updates an hour before class starts. You can also pre-enroll in any class you plan to attend so that, if we have enough advance notice, we can send you a note through your enrollment to let you know of any changes.
Do I need to be a runner to attend these classes?
Absolutely not! Stroller Strides/Stroller Barre is for moms of ALL fitness levels. We meet for a warm up, then power walk, jog, or run to each exercise station. You exercise at the pace you feel most comfortable.
At what age can my baby be in a jogger?
As a general guideline, when your baby can hold his/her head up, he/she can ride in a jogger. But we suggest that you follow your own stroller manufacturer’s guidelines. You can use a head roll and bolster to make your baby even more secure. With shock absorbers and recline features, the age can be quite young.
Do I need a jogging stroller for the workout?
Jogging strollers are not required. As long as the stroller is sturdy, not prone to tipping and all children can be safely strapped into their seats for the duration of class, it will work just fine!
My baby doesn't like being in the stroller for too long, how will I get a good workout?
Babies are your, and our, priority, so don't worry if your baby becomes fussy during class! Our classes are designed to keep the kids moving and engaged by incorporating songs and various props to keep them entertained. With that said, if you need to change, feed or console your baby, please do so (remember, you are in good company!). Kids will have good and bad days and we understand that. The kiddos learn the new routine of, "Mommy's hour" and learn a few things during our workout too!
How old does my baby need to be to start classes?
Babies and kids can join you at Stroller Strides/Stroller Barre up to any age as long as they can still safely be buckled in the stroller. We recommend waiting until you have medical clearance from your physician (normally this is 6-8 weeks postpartum). Always obtain your doctor's permission before starting this or any other kind of exercise program.
What do I do if my baby gets fussy during class?
That's okay! Sometimes babies cry. You will be in a group full of moms with their kids - we've all been there and we all get it. You're always able to do what you need to do to take care of your little one and, of course, we try to keep things moving so that the kids are happy and entertained.
What if I need to feed my baby during class?
We’ve got you, mama! If you need to change, feed or console your baby, please do so. Your instructor will make sure to provide you with comfort and discretion during class and will never let you get lost or left behind.
Can my older children walk along or ride their bike during class?
Safety is our first priority, so we do not allow kids to be out of the stroller during class, regardless of age.
Can I bring kids to Body Back?
Nope, this class is for women 18 and up without children present. This is YOUR time, mama.
Can I do Body Back if I am pregnant?
No. This workout is not intended for prenatal exercise and we do not recommend following the meal plans during pregnancy. If you become pregnant during the course of your Body Back session, please notify your instructor. We offer FIT4BABY, Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre as appropriate prenatal exercise programs.
What do I need to bring to class?
A yoga mat or towel/blanket, if you have one, for the core portion and cool down. A FIT4MOM resistance band (you will receive one at your first Body Back workout) plenty of water and a towel for your sweat. You WILL sweat!
What is the workout like?
Body Back is a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) class that is delivered in one of three ways: Rounds, Circuit or Traveling. We cycle through cardio, strength and core for a full-body workout that provides a significant caloric afterburn for enhanced results. Every class has an intention/theme and finishes with a relaxing meditation.
Do I need to be in great shape to participate in class?
No! We have all fitness levels in our classes! But, we will warn you ... these workouts are designed to be tough! Our goal is to deliver a workout that will challenge any fitness level. It might not be easy, but we promise results by the end of your 8-week session if you put in the work!
What makes Body Back and the FIT4MOM programs different from the gym?
Body Back is so much more than just another HIIT workout! We are a community of moms where you will find support, encouragement, camaraderie and lifelong friendships. Through education, we help you create a healthier home and more active lifestyle for your family. We believe you should be empowered and encouraged to push past your perceived limits and find inner strength while building physical strength. We strive to build you up and put you first to create your BEST YOU.
Do I need to pre-register or can I just show up?
For Body Back Transformation 8-week sessions, pre-register to ensure your spot in the class. These space-limited sessions sell out quickly, so you want to hold your spot by registering early.
For Body Back Transformation drop-in classes, pre-register so your instructor knows to expect you and can contact you if there are any changes to the class. We require a minimum number of clients to be enrolled in order to offer that class. If you cannot make it to class, you need to cancel with at least 12 hours notice or you will be charged for the class.
